I didn't plan on updating the site until the beginning of next week, but I came across the video above on fellow blogger Justice MH's page and I had to post it here. It seems ever since I posted the story on Juanita Bynum I've been forced to deal with my issues regarding christianity, my walk with Christ, and the politics of the black church. This is a very emotional and complex issue for me and to be honest I'd rather not deal with it right now, but I can't seem to shake my frustration at the direction the church is moving and the mass quantity of people they're excluding.
It didn't help that I ran into Donnie McClurkin yesterday in the airport, and we all know how I feel about him and his message. But when I saw this video I went from being shocked to being completely outraged! I have no idea who the pastor is in this video but this bullshit is in a class all by itself.
I honestly don't even know where to start with this one. I'm afraid I'll damage the keys on my laptop from typing hard because I'm so angry! When are we going to stand up as LGBT people and call these bigots on their homophobia or just get up and walk out of their churches ? Surely we'll be missed from their choirs, usher boards, ministerial staff, and our money will no doubt be missing from their collection plates.
Will somebody please do me a favor and forward me the name and e-mail address or website of the minister in this video. I can't help but think about the hundreds of gay and lesbian people, not to mention their families, who were negatively impacted by this wreckless hate speech. It's time to make some noise. I've had enough!
